I feel like I wasted $8.50. I thought the centers would be more academic. It was "cutesy" but not academic. I wanted to buy this unit because I thought I could just print and laminate, but I would have to make extra things to go with it.
On  November 28, 2013Deanna Jump answered:
I'm really confused by your feedback considering this unit has over 1900 4.0 ratings. This isn't listed as centers but it does include a few centers as described in the listing. The centers are completely academic unless you don't consider rhyming and addition a skill! BTW... this was created in 2010 and I'm currently working on revising the unit. The new unit should be uploaded tomorrow evening. Please make sure you download the revisions and I'd really appreciate it if you didn't purchase from me in the future if you are going to mark down a product simply because you failed to read the description. Thank you.

Hi Deanna,
I was wondering if you could "fix up" a couple of the word problems for me? There are two places where it says "altogether". I would prefer it said, "all together". Any chance you could edit and either repost or just send me that one page? I pulled my Christmas stuff out today and saw that I had made myself a note to ask you about it.. Thanks!

On  February 21, 2012Gay Evans (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi Deanna,
I love the math journal prompts but do have a question. Since you are gearing many of the prompts to K's, is there a reason why you write out the number words rather than using the numerals? I often retype them so that my K's can read more of the words and eventually all of the prompt. Just wondering.
Thanks,
Gay
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  February 22, 2012Deanna Jump answered:
Hi Gay, I write the number words because Kindergarten kids are required to read the number words from zero to ten. Seeing the number words over and over helps them master this skill much quicker. thanks!

Hi There, I have no idea about the conversion from euros to American dollars. If you use the Contact Us button at the bottom of the page to ask the question the founder, Paul will be able to answer it because he actually lives in France. :) I get my images from digiwebstudio.com and scrappindoodles.com

I recently purchased the Christmas Math and Literacy Fun unit. I noticed that there are some references to math journal prompts. Are those supposed to be included in the unit or we just use our own?

Thanks so much for a wonderful unit!

Hi Andee, Thanks so much for the compliment! :) For the science package...do you have the last version of Adobe acrobat? There have been about 4,000 of them downloaded so far and I haven't had anyone else let me know there was a problem. Try that and if that doesn't fix the problem email me at kindergartenteacher@cox.net and I will send it to you via email as a word document. :)
